The performance is free, but donations will be accepted at the door. HTP will represent the state of Mississippi as its top theatre program at the Southeastern Theatre Conference during the week of March 5th in Mobile, Alabama.
SETC is the nation’s premier gathering of theatrical professionals, and features both high school and community theatre competitions, as well as theatre for youth and fringe festivals. Students and adults alike can attend hundreds of workshops, audition for scholarships and jobs, and network with with over 5000 conference attendees. This will be HTP’s second consecutive trip to “nationals,” having won runner-up in 2013’s Mississippi Theatre Association Festival.
Costs to attend SETC near $16,000. “It takes quite a bit to move 45 people,” says Director William Rester. HTP has nearly reached its goal and needs one final push to make their trip happen. Consider attending the show and making a donation!
